Sturgis Motorcycle Shipping 2015

It isn’t too early to start planning the motorcycle shipping for your 2015 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally Trip, August 3 – 9. People have already been calling and emailing for motorcycle shipping rates to and from Sturgis this summer.

We have one carrier that has great round trip shipping rates. They also have 3 trucks at this event every year that stay during the entire Rally. It makes receiving your bike at Sturgis and dropping it off after the rally very convenient. The fact that the trucks stay at the show makes it a very desirable option.

Delivering 2 Voodoo Motorcycles

Here’s something you don’t see every day. We delivered two custom VooDoo bikes into a local warehouse in Los Angeles. From there they get crated up and shipped overseas.

Shipping a Motorcycle with Side Car?

We really don’t get too many requests to ship a bike with side car. But when we do please know that bikes with side cars do sometimes present a unique challenge depending on the dimensions of the unit. Most trucks that pick up bikes have a standard size lift gate.

The worlds most traveled motorcycle

So you think you have put the miles on your bike? Check out the story of Peter and Kay Forwood who hold the world record for most miles and locations on a motorcycle… or any vehicle for that matter.

From the website:

“Peter & Kay Forwood Trip Around The World On A Harley-Davidson

The World’s Most Traveled Motorcycle

This has been a fifteen year journey throughout the world which started in Australia on the 3rd of February 1996 and finished in October 2011. In October 2008 This Harley-Davidson motorcycle, carrying our luggage, became the first and only vehicle to have been ridden in all the 193 internationally recognized countries of the world that existed at that time. Since then we have continued traveling, visiting places we previously missed or returning to places we enjoyed. Our motorcycle was purchased new in 1994 and we have now ridden it over 610,000 km.”

MoverQuest was honored to ship this bike from Southern California back to its home in Australia.
